I am not in the market for one but I am happy to see it says weather resistant finally Pentax might start making all of its small primes weather resistant.

They seemed to have a problem deciding what the spirit of the limited series was, and where to go from the "3 Amigos", because part of it was about being compact.  An all-WR / no-more-screw-drive policy would be good but the recently re-coated lenses say that's not happening

It was valid to ask if there would be a non sealed / screw drive "4th Amigo", or no more limiteds, but instead the 21 they've show seems to keep the spirit of the originals 20+ years on, And I'm very temped by it one.

I think the chances of being able to buy one this year are better than 50:50, but never underestimate the ability of a Pentax product to be delayed
